Near Perfect / Perfect by Martin Mull
Released: Jan 2011
Label: Rhino/Elektra
Endlessly deadpan comedian/actor/musician Martin Mull released this combination of intentionally awful music and sideways comedy in 1979, amid the creative peaks of Steve Martin, Richard Pryor and George Carlin, among others. As such, Near Perfect/Perfect fits in with the oddball sensibilities of A Wild and Crazy Guy, but is delivered in Mull's unmatched back-slapping honky persona accompanied by a full band replete with a horn section and backup singers. It's highlighted by crowd fave "This Takes the Cake," a bluesy jazz number detailing the outs of being a D-list stand-up comedian.
